24 Weeks

I know this post is a week late, but it's here.

We had a busy and super fun time with the Swedin's in town last weekend for Easter... more on that later :)

On Thursday last week (24 weeks) I had my monthly appointment with Dr. Peters. It went great. I've gained appropriate weight for myself, and baby is healthy. Baby's heart rate is hanging in the 130s for now... Which Dr said is PERFECT! for where we're at in development! PRAISE GOD. I audio-recorded it but haven't figured out how to upload it here yet... Baby is just over a foot long, (head to toe now) weighing in around a pound. KB might gain about 6 ounces a week for a while... and hardly move that drastically in length. I guess it is time that little one fills out a bit :)

LOVE from a happy (and constantly tired) mama!

ps. Finley suggested names: for a girl "Pepotle" or "Chipotle" or Leela; for a boy: "Tinkerbell"

There are so many ugly and awful things going on across the globe, and across our front door. Our mission field is in Northern MN with Native Americans. In this ministry, we have stumbled through some thick, difficult situations. I am certain you can all attest to difficult times being just that: difficult. The Lord doesn't bring us into circumstances just to drag us along, seeing us become battered and bruised, but it IS His priority to bring glory to His name. We are His chosen ones, and our privilege is to sing Hallelujah to His name!

Anyway, I was thinking that we have faced difficulties. One thing that I wanted to share with you today is about my health.

In 2014, I was diagnosed with an auto-immune disorder called Alopecia. This was saddening and drove me and Tim crazy for three years. One day, I found a bald spot on my …

Celebrating 8 years | Marriage

Tim and I were blessed with a lovely weekend away on the North Shore, back to where it all began. Here is a photo from one of our days up there. We hiked at Tettegouche State Park, and couldn't have asked for better weather or fall colors!
